Profile

I started my career in the creative industries – theatre, journalism, film and festivals. I then moved into the communication field working with organisational presentation, and learning and development for life and work. I am now working (so they say!) in the ‘wisdom economy.’ Trained in Transactional Analysis – a psychological perspective which underpins all my professional roles, I work as a counsellor, coach and trainer.

As an independent learning consultant, I’m interested in how we thrive: how individuals and systems create positive outcomes when faced with never-ending challenge and change. My clients typically use me to address relationship building, leadership development, communication skills and capacity to change. As the workplace changes, I am increasingly working with resilience and self-reliance as people need to develop the skills to work independently and globally.
